Take Action: April 26, 2017 Support voting rights

Consider whether this bill to eliminate the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) is the best move. The EAC is an independent agency that was established in the aftermath of the 2000 Presidential election to ensure overall election integrity.  The agency helps state and local governments secure their electronic voting systems from cyberattacks, standardize and approve ballot language and design, and approve new voting machines and software. At a time of real concern over the hacking of our elections, we might need to strengthen agencies like the EAC, not cut them.

  • Call your Representative and ask that they publicly oppose HR 634 the Election Assistance Termination Act.
  • Call Representative Greg Harper of Mississippi, who has led the charge to end the EAC: (202) 225-5031 (601) 823-3400
  • Possible Script: Hi my name is ___ and I’m from [ZIPCODE]. I’m calling to ask that Representative ___ publicly oppose and vote against HR 634, the Election Assistance Termination Act.
